“south island trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

This a pleasant quiet motel not too far from the airport, within walking distance of downtown and parks and university.
Staff very pleasant and helpful.
Good restaurants nearby.
Bealey Avenue is busy but little noise in our room.

Room Tip: no preference

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

I stayed at Amross in a studio for one night in September 2013 on my way from Sydney to Nelson. It was clean, my room was large, and the hosts very helpful and welcoming. It is a bit out of date so if you are looking for something modern, it is not for you. However I was very happy with my room and I could not hear any noise from Bealey Ave which is a very busy road. The owners were happy to let me leave my bags with them the next day while I had a look around the CBD, before I went to the airport. There is plenty of room to park your car as well.

Great location with an easy walk into the city, and a lot of local facilities, Amross is a comfortable and convenient base for visiting Christchurch. Run by a very friendly and helpful couple, it's the ideal place for a great stay! SB

We stayed in room 8 for 2 nights in February 2014. Fantastic little upstairs room with spa bath in the spacious bathroom. Had everything we needed. Even though the motel is located on a fairly busy road, the double door system in our room meant that we could not hear any traffic noise and the room was very quiet. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. Can easily walk in to the city centre. Easy off street parking available. Would definitely stay again.

Small dark room with spa bath which then excludes a stand in shower. Toaster kettle and other cooking utensil , room was old fashioned with dark brown furniture, drapes and cover. A bit out of the way if you do not have a car. Very helpful staff.

I find this review disturbing, we are 4 star plus Qualmark rated.
It may be their opinion, or maybe they have us confused with another motel, but their review is just so different to other peoples. You only have to look at the review above, these 2 guests are talking about the same unit.

Thanks

Bruce

I booked this motor lodge through Expedia about 3 months before travelling to the South Island New Zealand for my self and three mates due to its good location and rating. I had a number of email contacts with the proprietors before travelling to New Zealand where they acknowledged the booking and asked for my bedding preferences. When I arrived on the checkin date I was told first I had no booking then was told that I had been booked into another Motor Lodge further down the street. I had no choice in the matter and stayed at the alternate accommodation.

Hi
We are very sorry for the inconvenience this caused you.
It was very unfortunate, we had a miss communication with the previous guest, we had them booked in for 4 nights and when they arrived they wanted 5 nights.
It seemed easier to find you alternative accommodation at the time.
Once again sorry.
Bruce and Sue.
